Fall Colour Trend

I’m heading north for Thanksgiving and I know there are other’s heading up to.  Unfortunately, the colours are now past peak.  This fall has been a fairly wet and windy one.  Because of that, a lot of the leaves are gone already.  It will still be beautiful and fresh up north if you go.  You just might not get as many colours as normal but there still will be some left on the trees.  Just to even take a walk on the Lookout Trail would be pretty!  Here is the Fall colour report from the Friends of Algonquin Park:

Contest Alert and Thanksgiving in #AlgonquinPark

IMG_0201On Tuesday October 1st you can enter to win your own set of Jeff’s Maps!  These maps are waterproof, foldable, and easy to read.  Not only that but you can learn a lot about the history of Algonquin Park with all the need tidbits that Jeff McMurtrie added to them!  The contest will run from October 1-14.

Thanksgiving will soon be upon us and while most people think about going home to be with family, there are some of us who would rather be in Algonquin.  I’m on of those people!  I love Algonquin on Thanksgiving.  The colours are beautiful, the air is crisp, it’s relatively quiet and why wouldn’t you want to be in the great outdoors!  I’m heading up to my cottage for the weekend, probably the last weekend before it sells.  I am planning on doing a day trip to the park on the Saturday.

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and Good Luck to all who enter the contest!

Fall in #AlgonquinPark

It will soon be time for apple cider, cozy fires, and beautiful colours!  Algonquin Park is the best place to experience fall to it’s fullest.  If you’ve ever wanted to do some fall camping you can!  Some campgrounds are open right until Thanksgiving Weekend (Canisbay, Two Rivers) and Mew Lake is open year round.  I love camping on Thanksgiving Weekend with the crisp air and gently falling leaves.

Fall is also a great time to just visit for the day!  All the trails along Hwy 60 are open and may give you some great opportunities to see some wildlife and beautiful colours.  The best place to see the fall colours?  The Lookout Trail!  Once you are done your hike you can go and visit the Logging Museum and Visitor’s Center.  The Visitor’s Center is another perfect viewing area for the rich reds and brilliant golds of fall.  If you are in the mood to do a canoe trip or backpacking trip you can as well.  There will be very little to no bugs and the park traffic will be quieter then in the height of summer.

Fall is my favorite time to visit the park and I hope that you can get the chance to do that as well.

~Enjoy your Trip!
